1 Introduction 



Birth statistics 2007 presents statistics on births occurring 
annually in England and Wales between 1997 and 2007. 

The annual update on fertility trends in 2007 was published 
in P opulation Trends 134 in December 2008 (see section 
1.6^ . Provisional data for 2007 were first published on the 
ONS website in July 2007: www.statistics.gov.uk/statbase/ 
Product.asp?vlnk=14408 

This volume is produced by the Office for National 
Statistics (ONS). ONS was formed on 1 April 1996, 
bringing together the Office of Population Censuses 
and Surveys (OPCS) and the Central Statistical Office. 
OPCS is referred to in this volume for historic events and 
publications. On 1 April 2008, ONS became the executive 
office of the UK Statistics Authority, a non-ministerial 
department which reports directly to Parliament. The 
overall objective of the UK Statistics Authority is to 
promote and safeguard the quality of official statistics that 
serve the public good. 

This volume is published under the National Statistics logo, 
the designation guaranteeing that those outputs have been 
produced to high professional standards set out in a code of 
practice, and have been produced free of political influence. 

The registration of life events (births, deaths, marriages, 
and civil partnerships) is a service earned out by the 
Local Registration Service in partnership with the General 
Register Office (GRO) in Southport. Since 1 April 2008, 
GRO has been part of the Identity and Passport Service. 

1.1 Tables in this volume 

The tables presented in this volume are set out in 1 1 
sections, covering various fertility topics including 
characterist ics of the birth and of the parents. Tables in 



marriage figures for 2006 and 2007 are not available for this 
publication. 



Section 10| analyse trends in cohort fertility; otherwise, the 
tables use period fertility measures. 

For brevity, the time series shown here have been limited to 
a run of 1 1 years at most. Figures for earlier years are shown 
in earlier volumes of Birth statistics. This series includes 
a volume of historical fertility statistics 1 containing some 
time series back to 1837, the year of the introduction of 
compulsory birth registration. More detailed time series are 
also included for years from 1938, the year in which the first 
Population Statistics Act came into force - see section 2.14 



Tables 7.2 



7.4,|8.2 and 8.3 show births and maternities by 



Strategic Health Authority (SHA) in England. From 1 July 
2006, the 28 previous SHAs were restructured and reduced 
to 10. 



Tables 9.1 p nd 9.6 present live births by birthplace of 
mother. Data for previous years have been compiled to be 
consistent with the country classification listing for 2007. 



Table 9.5 ft hows the total fertility rates by mother's country 
of birth and uses population denominators from the censuses 
of 1991 and 2001. It aggregates countries into groupings 
that provide denominators large enough for reliable rates. 
Surveys conducted between censuses are unable to provide 
reliable denominators for individual foreign countries for 
intervening years. 

Data from 2001 onwards have been coded to the new 
socio-economic classification as defined by occupation and 
employment status. Therefore Tables 11.1 to |11.5| have been 
adjusted to sh ow data for the seven years 2001 to 2007 only. See 
section 3.10 far further information. Some figures from Table 
11.3| were~not a vailable for 20 07 at the time of publication of 
this volume. See section 3.11 for further information. 



1.2 Symbols and conventions 

In this volume: 

denotes not available 
: denotes not appropriate/not applicable 

denotes nil 
denotes less than 0.5 
* suppressed to protect confidentiality 

Where data are not yet available, cells in tables are left 
blank. Rates and percentages calculated from fewer than 20 



events (for example |Table 3.5)| are distinguished by italic 
type as a warning to users that their reliability as a measure 
may be affected by the small number of events. 

Figures in some tables in this publication may not add 
precisely due to rounding or suppression. 



Conception figures are published separately in an annual 
reference volume Conception statistics 2 Previously, 
conceptions have been published as a separate supplement 
to Birth statistics and prior to Conception statistics 2001 
were published as part of the Birth statistics annual 
reference volume. 



Certain tables (for example Tables 3.7, 4.2,||4J and 6.4) 



Table 1.3 shows natural change in population. Prior to 
2006, the death counts used to calculate natural change 
were based on occurrences. Since 2006, death counts have 
been based on registrations. For consistency within this 
volume, deaths for 1997 to 2007 are based on registrations. 



The number of marriages for 2005 are shown in Table 1.5 
and the percentage of first marriages in 2 005 with a bi rth 
within 8 months of marriage are shown in Table 1.8. The 



showing a combination of information on stillbirths, and 
data items collected under the Population Statistics Act 
have been aggregated to protect confidentiality. 3 

1.3 Data analysed in this volume 

The data used in this volume are summarised on the 
following pages. The items covered are collected for both 
live births and stillbirths. 

Births in this volume were recorded by registrars using 
either the Registration Online (RON) system or the 
Registration Service Software (RSS) system. See section 
| 1.4| for further information.

The information used in tables in this volume is based 
largely on the details collected when births are registered. 

Most of the information, for both live births and stillbirths, 
is supplied to registrars by one or both parents. For live 
births, details of birthweight are notified to the local health 
authority by the hospital where the birth took place, or 
by the midwife or doctor in attendance at the birth. These 
details are then supplied to the registrar. 

For stillbirths, details of cause of death, duration of 
pregnancy and weight of foetus are supplied on a certificate 
or notification by the doctor or midwife either present at 
the birth, or who examined the body. The certificate or 
notification is then taken by the informant to a registrar. The 
registrar will use all this information to complete a draft entry 



Form 309 I Annex A or Annex C) for a live birth or Form 
308 (Annex Blor Annex D)| for a stillbirth. 



The mother's usual address is entered, as is that of the 
informant where appropriate. This information is use d for 
tables showing usual residence of mothe r|7.1 fr o |7.7,| as 
well as Table 3.10, which analyses jointly registered births 
outside marriage and whether the parents resided at the 
same address. 

Occupation is recorded for the mother and for the father, if 
his name is entered in the register. The informant is asked 
whether the father/mother was in gainful employment at 
any time before the child's birth, and a description of the 
occupation may be recorded. The informant may not wish 
to have details of the father's/mother's occupation entered in 
the register, but it may still be recorded for use in statistical 
analyses. If the father is unemployed, his last full-time 



occupation will be recorded. As discussed in section 3.10, 



The date of birth is supplied in a conventional way, except 
that where more than one child is liveborn at a confinement, 
then time of birth is also recorded. Place of birth is entered as 
the usual name and the address of a hospital, maternity home 
or other communal establishment, or the address of a private 
dwelling. ONS then co des place of birth to one of the groups 
of places in |Table 8.1.| The sex of the child is also recorded. 

Although the birthplace of each parent may be recorded 

in detail if this was in the United Kingdom, the main 

interest in this volume is in parents bom outside the United 

Kingdom - see Tables 9.1 to 9.6. 
xii 



this information is used for analyses of s ocio-economi c

Informants are also required to provide further information, 
treated as confidential, under the provisions of the 
Population Statistics Acts (PSA), as below: 

i. the father's date of birth, if his name is entered in the 

register 
ii. the mother's date of birth, and

iii. the date of the parents' marriage 

iv. whether the mother has been married more than 

once 
v. number of previous children by her present husband 

and any former husband, (a) born alive, and (b) stillborn 

These confidential details are used extensively in this 
volume, in particular for analyses of age of mother and 
father, of marriage duration, and of birth order. See 



section 1.4 below for details of issues affecting the quality 
of these variables in 2007. 

Other statistical information collected at registration 
includes the economic activity of each parent, that is, 
industry and employment status, and whether the 
confinement resulted in a multiple birth. 

1.4 Issues affecting the quality of the data in this volume 

In November 2006, a pilot for an online system of 
registering life events, RON, commenced in five 
registration districts. 

Following the success of this pilot, RON was implemented 
in most register offices on 26 March 2007. However, as 
a result of significant performance problems, the system 
was suspended on 10 April 2007 resulting in around half 



of registrars reverting back to using the previous electronic 
system, RSS. From 8 May 2007, almost all register offices 
were submitting data electronically using either RON or 
RSS. Any remaining birth registrations that were held only 
on paper at register offices were later entered onto the RON 
system at ONS, or by the local registration service. Once 
all the birth records were available electronically, a rigorous 
statistical quality assurance process was completed by ONS. 

With the introduction of RON, it has become possible to 
carry out some additional validation checks at the point of 
registration, such as, validation of address and postcode. 
For births in 2007, 5 1 per cent were recorded by registrars 
using this system rather than using RSS. 

Under the Population Statistics Act (PSA) certain data items 
are collected at the registration of a birth (mother's date of 
birth, father's date of birth (where his name is entered in the 
register), and for births within marriage the date of marriage 
and numbers of previous live born and stillborn children). 
If any of these data items is missing, an appropriate value 
is imputed by ONS for the data item or the corresponding 
derived variable. 

The methodology used to impute missing PSA data items 
has developed over recent years. Prior to 2004, the donor 
record chosen to impute a missing data item was the most 



xm 



recently processed complete record appropriate to that data 
item. From 2004 to 2006 all imputed values for PSA data 
items were re-imputed using CANCEIS (Canadian Census 
Edit and Imputation System) 4 which selects the most 
appropriate donor record from the entire annual dataset. 
Compared with the previous imputation system, this 
improved the distribution of mothers' ages (especially in 
small areas) and the distributions for each of the other PSA 
data items. 

In 2007, a new process was run by ONS to link live birth 
registrations, where mother's date of birth was not collected, 
to corresponding birth notification records. In cases where 
the mother's date of birth was available on the notification 
and the notification was successfully linked to the 
corresponding birth record, the mother's date of birth was 
taken from this source and mothers' age was calculated. The 
remaining missing PSA data items were then re-imputed 
using CANCEIS as in previous years. 



registrations in the statistical dataset was found to have 
an adverse effect on the quality of infant mortality data 
when linked with the live birth data. The annual dataset 
now includes only those births occurring in the reference 
year, and late registrations of births occurring in the year 
previous to the reference year. See section 2.2 for further 
discussion of occurrences and registrations. The numbers 
of late registrations included in, and numbers of very late 
registrations excluded from, the statistics are shown in 
Table A. 

1.5 Associated publications and the ONS website 

The ONS website (www.ons.gov.uk) provides a 
comprehensive source of freely available vital statistics and 
ONS products. More information on the ONS website can 



be obtained from the contact address in section 2.15 



Historic data and figures for UK countries 



In 2007, the percentage of records without mother's date of 
birth details collected at registration rose from 1 .5 per cent 
in 2006 to 2.0 per cent. Although this affected only a small 
number of records, they were clustered in births registered 
in particular registration districts and registered around the 
time of the suspension of the RON system in April 2007. 

In 1 999 the proportion of live birth registrations without 
Population Statistics information received from one 
register office was higher than usual due to a combination 
of circumstances. The missing data on those records were 
imputed using a random sample of data for that particular 
area from the previous three years. This was a change from 
the usual method, but was used to improve the quality 
of the imputations. Procedures were put in place which 
mean that such a problem is unlikely to recur. For further 
information about this see section C.2 of the 1999 volume. 5 

After the publication of the 1997 volume in this series, an 
error was discovered in the births database that resulted in 
1,002 live births being excluded from the published 1997 
statistics. Details of the error were included in section D.l 
of the 1998 volume. 6 All time series tables in this and other 
volumes since 1997 reflect the corrected data for 1997. 
Since the dataset for the 2000 volume, a small number 
of very late registrations have been excluded each year 
from the official statistics. Inclusion of these very late

section 2.15. 



• Conception statistics, which contains data on 
conceptions by age of mother at conception, area of 
residence, marital status and outcome (that is whether 
the conception resulted in an abortion or a maternity) 

• DR (Mortality statistics), which contains data on 
deaths registered in England and Wales, classified by 
sex and age and by other selected information collected 
at the time of registration 

• DH3 (Mortality statistics: childhood, infant and 
perinatal), which contains data on stillbirths, infant 
deaths, and childhood deaths. It includes figures 
for infant deaths linked to their corresponding 
birth records, as well as birthweight data for health 
authorities analysed separately by age, socio-economic 
classification and parity 

FM2 (Marriage, divorce and adoption statistics), 
which provides data on marriages by age of bride and 
bridegroom, on divorces by ages of children involved, 
and on adoptions by age of child at adoption 

Fertility data are also published annually in the ONS 
volume Key population and vital statistics. 1 This volume 
provides data on population, births, deaths, and migration, 
for administrative areas in the United Kingdom, including 
local and health authorities/boards. 

Population Trends and Health Statistics Quarterly 
publications 

Up to 1998 ONS published annual data in Monitors, 
known as the series FM1 for conceptions and live births. 
These contained basic information on annual conceptions 
and live birth registrations, and were issued soon after 
the data became available. However, these publications 
have been discontinued and since 1 999 these data have 
appeared in reports issued in the quarterly journal Population 
Trends. Since the beginning of 1999, ONS has published 
two quarterly journals: Population Trends, which now has 
an emphasis on population and demography, covering most 
fertility topics, and Health Statistics Quarterly covering 
mortality and health topics, including conceptions, abortions, 
and some other fertility data. The annual report on live births 
by area of residence is published in Population Trends} 

Population Trends and Health Statistics Quarterly both 
contain regular quarterly reference tables on a variety of 
population and health topics; for fertility these include 
analyses of births (numbers and rates) by age of mother.

2 Notes and definitions 



2.1 Base populations 



The population figures in Appendix Table 1, which are 



used to calculate fertility rates in this volume, are mid-year 
estimates of the resident population of England and Wales 
based on the 2001 Census of Population. These estimates 
include members of HM armed forces and non-UK armed 
forces stationed in England and Wales, but exclude those 
stationed outside. ONS mid-year population estimates are 
updated figures using the most recent census, allowing for 
births, deaths, net migration and ageing of the population. 

In this volume, the population estimates used for the 
calculation of fertility rates are the latest consistent 
estimates available at the time of its production and were 
published as follows: 

Population estimates by age and sex: 

• 2007 estimates; published on 21 August 2008 

Population estimates by marital status: 

• 2007 marital status estimates; published on 19 November 
2008 

Further information on population estimates, and their 
methodology, can be found at: www.statistics.gov.ulc/popest 

2.2 Occurrences and registrations 

Between 1994 and 2000, the cut-off date for inclusion in the 
annual dataset was births occurring in the reference year that 
were registered by 1 1 February of the following year, this 
being 42 days after 3 1 December, the legal time limit for 
registering a birth. For 2001, the cut-off date was extended 
to 25 February 2002 to allow increased capture of births 
registered late. This change means that the annual statistics 
are prepared on as close to a true occurrences basis as 
possible, which provides a purer denominator for calculating 
infant mortality rates. 

To avoid artificially inflating the 2001 dataset through the 
increased capture of late registrations, the start date for 
the carry over of late registrations from births occurring in 
2000 was similarly moved by two weeks. 

The total number of births recorded in this 2007 volume 
includes: 

a. the following compiled from the standard annual extract 
taken in May 2008: 

i. births occurring in 2007 which were registered by 
25 February 2008, and 



ii. births occurring in 2006 which were registered 
between 26 February 2007 and 25 February 2008 
that is births in the previous year which had not 
been tabulated previously. 

b. a small number of additional stillbirths that were 

registered by 25th February 2008 but were received by 
ONS after the first annual extract had been taken in May 
2008. These were included in a later extract taken in 
September 2008. 

The number of births registered late in a. ii. was 326 in 
the 2007 dataset, compared with 519 in the 2000 dataset, 
reflecting the extended cut-off date. 

In the 2000 volume the total number of births included: 9 

a. births which occurred in 2000 registered by 1 1 February 
2001, and 

b. births occurring in 1999 which were registered between 
12 February 2000 and 11 February 2001, that is births 
in the previous year which had not been tabulated 
previously 

Total annual births for 1 994 to 1 999 were derived in a 
similar way, except that births for all earlier years were 
included in the annual totals, not just births in the previous 



year - see section 1.4 for more details. Up to 1993 the 
cut-off date was 31 January of the following year, but from 
1 994 this was then extended to the legal time limit by 
which a birth should be registered (42 days). 

The number of births registered late in (b) was about 1,500 
to 3,000 per year from 1987 to 1993, but from 1994 it fell 
to about 500 to 600 annually. 



2.3 Areal coverage 

The births recorded in this volume are those occurring (and 
then registered) in England and Wales. No distinction is 
made between births to civilians and births to non-civilians. 

A birth to a mother whose usual residence is outside England 
and Wales is assigned to the country of residence. These 
births are included in total figures for England and Wales, 
but excluded from any sub-division of England and Wales. 



They are identified as a separate group in | Tables 7.1 | to |7.7 



xvii 



2.4 Registration of births 



2.5 Visitors and overseas registrations 



Every registrar of births and deaths is required to secure 
the prompt registration of births occurring within the sub- 
district covered. Registration of a birth is legally required 
within 42 days of its occurrence, and the registrar will, if 
necessary, send a requisition to the person whose duty it is 
to register the birth. 

Under the National Health Service Act 2006 and the 
National Health Service (Wales) Act 2006, births must 
also be notified, within 36 hours, to the Director of Public 
Health in the health authority where the birth occurred. 
This is earned out by the hospital where the birth took 
place, or by the midwife or doctor in attendance at the birth. 
Each month, a list of the births which have occurred in the 
sub-district is supplied to the registrar, who will then check 
whether every birth has been registered. 

The following people are qualified to give information to 
the registrar concerning a birth: 

a. the mother of the child, and the father if the child was 
born within marriage 

b. the occupier of the house in which the child was, to the 
knowledge of that occupier, born 

c. any person present at the birth 

d. any person having charge of the child 

The duty of giving information is placed primarily upon 
the parents of the child but, in the case of death or inability 
of the parents, the duty falls on one of the other qualified 
informants. 

The particulars to be registered concerning a birth are 
prescribed by the Births and Deaths Registration Act 1953, 

Certain other particulars 



and are covered in section 1.3 



are collected for statistical purposes under the Population 
Statistics Acts 1938 and 1960, and are not entered in the 
register. All details are entered on a draft entry Form 309 
(Annex A,|C for a live birth, or Form 308 Annex bTd ) 
for a stillbirth. These are checked by the informant before 
being entered in the register. 



The procedures and information required for stillbirths are 
similar to those for live births. The main difference is the 
recording of the cause of death of the stillborn child, on 
evidence given by the doctor or midwife present at the birth 
or who examined the body. 



As noted above, the coverage of this volume is of births 
occurring, and then registered, in England and Wales. Births to 
residents of England and Wales which are registered elsewhere 
are thus excluded, while births registered in England and 
Wales to mothers whose usual residence is elsewhere, are 
included. In 2007, there were 242 live births in England and 
Wales to visitors whose normal residence was outside England 
and Wales. 

In 2007, 10,304 births occurring outside the United 
Kingdom to British nationals were voluntarily registered 
with British Consulates, British High Commissioners, 
or HM Armed Forces registration centres. Most of these, 
however, are likely to be births to women who had 
emigrated from the United Kingdom - that is, had lived 
outside the UK for at least one year - and were thus not 
residents of England and Wales. Such persons are not 
included in population estimates for England and Wales. 

At any one time some women of childbearing age (defined 
as age 15-44), usually resident in England and Wales, are 
temporarily absent overseas. But most of these women are 
absent for only a short period, and it is unlikely that more 
than a few hundred per year give birth while overseas. Also, 
the number of births during 2007 to residents of England 
and Wales that were registered in Scotland and Northern 
Ireland were 1 86 and 1 9 respectively. 

Thus, the number of births to residents of England and 
Wales occurring outside the country is likely to be of the 
same order as the number of births occurring in England 
and Wales to visitors resident elsewhere. The effect on 
fertility rates of the difference between the definitions used 
for birth event numerators and population denominators is 
assumed to be negligible. 



2.6 Abandoned children 

Few, if any, details are known about abandoned children, 
and they are not included in the statistics given in this 
volume. However, since 1977 these infants have been 
included in the Abandoned Children Register maintained 
at the GRO in Southport. There were no such entries made 
in 2007. 



2.7 Country of birth of each parent 



Usually, information for the registration of a birth must be 
given personally by the informant to the registrar for the 
sub-district in which the birth occurred. However, since 
April 1 997 an informant may supply this information to 
any registrar by making a declaration of these particulars. 
The declaration is sent to the registrar of the sub-district 
where the birth occurred, and that registrar will enter the 
particulars in the register. 



xvm 



The country of birth of each parent for children born in 
England and Wales has been recorded at birth registration 
since April 1969. 

Country of birth groupings represent the 2007 classification 
list in which country codes have been harmonised to 
international standards. The details for country of birth 



groupings are shown in Table B. Further summary tables 
containing data on live births by mother's/father's country 
of birth can be found on the website: http://www.statistics.

Rest of the World 



In Section 41 of the Births and Deaths Registration Act 
1953, a stillbirth is defined as 'a child which has issued 
forth from its mother after the twenty-eighth week of 
pregnancy and which did not at any time after being 
completely expelled from its mother breathe or show 
other signs of life'. This definition was used up to 30 
September 1992. 

On 1 October 1992 the Stillbirth (Definition) Act 1992 
came into force, altering the above definition of a stillbirth 
to 24 or more weeks completed gestation. Figures for 
stillbirths from 1 993 are thus not fully comparable with 
those for previous years. The effect of this change on 
figures for 1992 is analysed in the annual volume for that 
year. 10 



2.9 True birth order 

When a birth is within marriage, information is obtained 
on the number of the mother's previous children, both 
live births and stillbirths. This allows determination of the 
registration birth order - that is, the number of previous 
live births plus the birth which has just occurred, counting 
only those births fathered by a previous or current husband. 
However, this measure is deficient for fertility statistics in 
two respects: 

a. at registration, the question on previous live births 
and stillbirths is not asked where the birth occurred 
outside marriage, and 



xix 



b. at the registration of births and stillbirths occurring 
within marriage, previous live births occurring outside 
marriage and where the woman had never been married 
to the father are not counted. Howeve r, because of the 
ambiguous nature of the question (see Annex A md[C]| it 
is possible that births outside marriage where the woman 
subsequently married the father may not always be 
included. 

The proportion of births occurring outside marriage has risen 
steadily in recent years. To allow for this, the information 
collected on birth order at registration has been supplemented 
to give estimates of overall or true birth order - that is, a 
measure which includes births both within and outside 
marriage. The supplementary information is obtained from the 
General Household Survey (GHS). 

The following example of a hypothetical birth history helps to 
illustrate the relationship between true birth order, marital birth 
order and birth order collected at registration:

Prior to the 2004 volume of Birth statistics, information 
from the GHS for 1986-1996, 1998 and 2000 was used to 
produce the estimates of true birth order. In the 2004, 2005 
and 2006 volumes, Tables 1.7, 10.3 and 10.5 use additional 
information from the GHS for the years 2001-2003. This 
2007 volume supplements this information further by 
incorporating the latest updates from the GHS for the years 
2004-2006. The method of estimation is described in a 
Population Trends article. 11 



Table 1.7| shows mean ages for each true birth order 
calculated in two ways: 

a. Unstandardised means use only numbers of births by 
true birth order and single year of age of mother 

b. Standardised means use rates per 1 ,000 female 
population by true birth order and single year of age 
of mother. This serves to eliminate the effect of year 
to year changes in the age-structure of the female 
population 



2.10 Births within marriage, and sole and joint 
registration 

A birth within marriage is that of a child bom to parents 
who were lawfully married to each other either: 

a. at the date of the child's birth, or 

b. when the child was conceived, even if they later 
divorced or the father died before the child's birth 

Only for a birth within marriage will the registrar enter on 
the draft entry and in the register (Form 309 - Annex A|C" 



or Form 308 - Annex B,|D| confidential particulars relating 



to the date of the parents' marriage, whether the mother 
has been married more than once, and the number of the 
mother's previous live born and stillborn children - see 



section 1.3. 



Births occurring outside marriage may be registered 
either jointly or solely. A joint registration records details 
of both parents, and requires them both to be present. A sole 
registration records only the mother's details. In a few cases 
a joint registration is made in the absence of the father if an 
affiliation order or statutory declaration is provided. 

Information from the birth registrations is used to determine 
whether the mother and father jointly registering a birth 
outside marriage were usually resident at the same address 



at the time of registration - see Table 3.10. Births with both 
parents at the same address are identified by a single entry 
for the informant's usual address, while different addresses 
are identified by two entries. 



2.11 Rates 

In this volume, fertility rates have been calculated using the 
most up-to-date consistent mid-year estimates of the female 
population, based on the 2001 Census. See : 



Appendix Table 1. 



section 2. 1 



and 



The most commonly used rates are described below 12 : 



Crude birth rate 

This is the simplest overall measure of fertility in the 
population, given by the number of live births in a year per 
1 ,000 mid-year population. It is unsophisticated since it 
takes no account of the composition of the population, in 
particular the age and sex distribution. 

It is given by (B/P) x 1,000 
where B = total live births in the year, and 
P = mid-year population. 



In this volume it is used in Tables 1.1b and 1.3 



V\ 



General fertility rate (GFR) 

This is an easily calculated measure of current fertility 
levels, and denotes the number of live births per 1 ,000 
women aged 15-44. However, it makes no allowance for 
different sized cohorts of women at childbearing ages. 

It is given by (B/Pf 5 J x 1,000 
where B 



a=44 and over 



pf : 

15-44 



total live births in the year, and 
female population aged 15-44. 



In this volume it is used in Tables l.lb,|7.1 md 



7.2. 



Age-specific fertility rates (ASFRs) 

ASFRs are a measure of fertility specific to the age of the 
mother, and are useful for comparing the reproductive 
behaviour of women at different ages. They are calculated 
by dividing the number of live births to mothers of each age 
group by the number of females in the population of that 
age and then expressed per 1,000 women in the age group. 
They can be calculated for single ages, but are usually 
calculated for five-year age groups in the reproductive age 
range, from under 20 up to 45 and over. They provide the 
basis for a detailed analysis of fertility levels by age of 
mother when giving birth. 

The ASFR based on five-year age groups is given by 
F a = (B/F)x 1,000 

where F = age-specific fertility rate for age-group a, 
B a = live births to women in age-group a, 
P f = female population in age-group a, and 
a = age-group under 20, .... ,45 and over. 

For the groups under 20 and 45 and over, the female 
populations used are women aged 15-19, and women aged 
45-49 respectively. 



ASFRs are used in Tables 7.3 md 7.4 of this volume 



From the above the TFR = 2_, F 

asunder 16 

where F = B /P f 

a a a 

and B = live births to women in age-group a, 
P f = female population in age-group a, and 
a = ages under 16, 16, 17, .... , 42, 43, 44 and over. 

For the groups under 1 6 and 44 and over, the female 
populations used are women aged 15, and women aged 44 
respectively. 



The TFR is used in 



Tables 1.4 



1.9,|2.1,|2.3,|7Z 



7.2 and 



9.5. 



Gross reproduction rate (GRR) 

The GRR is the sum of age-specific fertility rates for 
female births only, calculated in the same way as the TFR. 
It represents the average number of live daughters that 
a woman would bear in her life if the female population 
experienced current age-specific fertility rates based on 
female births throughout their childbearing period. 



The GRR is used in Table 1.4 



Net reproduction rate (NRR) 

The NRR is similar to the GRR, but allows for the effect 
of mortality to women of childbearing age. Not all women 
survive to the end of the possible reproductive period. It 
represents the average number of live daughters that a 
woman would bear if the female population experienced 
current age-specific fertility rates and female survival rates 
throughout their childbearing period. 



The NRR is used in Table 1.4 



Average family size 



Total fertility rate (TFR) 

In this volume, for most tables the TFR is derived by 
summing single-year age-specific fertility rates over all 
ages within the childbearing lifespan. It is a measure 
independent of variations in the age distribution of women 
of childbearing age. It may be interpreted as representing 
the completed fertility of a synthetic cohort of women 
- that is, the average number of live children that a group 
of women would have if they experienced the age-specific 
fertility rates for the calendar year in question throughout 
their childbearing lifespan. 



Average family size is presented in this volume for women 
by year of birth and age, in tables on cohort fertility. For 
each cohort (that is, women born in a particular year) it 
represents the number of births per woman, and is shown 
by bi rth order for births within marriage. Thus in Table 
10.4 the cohort bom in 1951 had, between ages 20 and 24, 



borne on average 0.65 children per woman. Further, 0.59 
per woman were within marriage, of which 0.31 were first 
births, 0.21 second births, and so on. 



Stillbirth rate 



The stillbirth rate is defined as the number of stillbirths per 



1,000 live births and stillbirths, and is used in Tables 1.2 
T6land|iul 



xxi 



Sex ratio 

Expressed as males per 1,000 females, most often for live 



birth s, but a lso for stillbirths. It is used here in [Tables 1.1b

Other rates used in this volume include: 

Live births within marriage per 1,000 married women, by 



Tables 1.1b md 3.1b 



Live births w ithi n ma rriage per 1,000 married men, by age

2.12 Accuracy of information 



The accuracy of information contained in the draft birth 
entry (Form 309 for a live birth or Form 308 for a stillbirth 
Annex A j|C |and b]|d respectively) is the responsibility 



of the informant(s) - usually the mother, or the mother and 
father where the registration is a joint one outside marriage. 
Wilfully supplying false information may render the 
informant(s) liable to prosecution for perjury. 

It is believed that in general the information supplied by the 
informant(s) is correct. Computerised internal consistency 
checks are applied to each record to eliminate, as far 
as possible, errors made in the supply and recording of 
information on births. 

Births that are registered using the RON system provide the 
opportunity for the registrar to make validation checks at 
the point of registration, therefore improving the quality of 
the data. 

There are a few, very small, known errors in the database 
each year which it is not possible to correct. Their effects 
on the statistics are explained in relevant se ctions of these 



2.13 Historical information 

The formal registration of live births commenced on 1 July 
1837, while stillbirths have been registered only since 1 July 
1927. Confidential particulars for statistical purposes have 
been ascertained since 1 July 1938, under the Population 
Statistics Act of that year. From the later date, it has also 
been possible to routinely distinguish multiple births. 

The Population Statistics Act 1 960, effective from 1 
January 1961, added a question on father's date of birth 
to the confidential particulars requested in the case of 
births within marriage. This applied also to births outside 
marriage where the father's name is entered in the register. 
Questions on father's and mother's place of birth were 
introduced on 1 April 1969 by the Registration of Births, 
Deaths and Marriages Regulations 1968. 



notes - for instance, duration of marriage in | section 3.4 



As noted in lsection 2.8,| the Stillbirth (Definition) Act of 
1992 altered the definition of the gestation period for a 
stillbirth from 28 to 24 completed weeks. 

The coming into force of the Statistics and Registration 
Service Act 2007 on 1 April 2008 ended the arrangement 
whereby the National Statistician was concurrently the 
Registrar General for England and Wales and the General 
Register Office (GRO) being part of the Office for National 
Statistics (ONS). The Statistics Board is the legal successor 
to ONS and inter alia undertakes the former statistical 
functions of the Registrar General. The responsibility 
for the production of birth statistics is now a function of 
the UK Statistics Authority (the preferred name for the 
Statistics Board) who are required to produce an annual 
abstract of those statistics in order that the Minister for the 
Cabinet Office can lay it before Parliament. 



2.14 Legislation 

The existing provisions for the registration of births and the 
processing, reporting and analysis of births data appear in 
different legislation that reflects the distinct and separate 
roles of the Registrar General for England and Wales and 
the UK Statistics Authority (the preferred name for the 
Statistics Board). 

The Registrar General is guided by the following:- 

Births and Deaths Registration Act 1953, which covers 
all aspects of the registration of births and stillbirths 

• Population Statistics Act 1938, which deals with the 
statistical information collected at registration 

• Population Statistics Act 1 960, which makes further 
provision for collecting statistical detail at registration 

Stillbirth (Definition) Act 1992, which altered the 
definition of a stillbirth to 24 or more weeks completed 



xxn 



gestation, instead of the previous definition of 28 or 
more weeks 

National Health Service Act 2006 and National 
Health Service (Wales) Act 2006, which consolidate 
legislation relating to the health service and separate 
provision of the health service in Wales from that in 
England. The Acts require notification of a birth to 
the local Primary Care Trust (Local Health Board in 
Wales) where the birth occurred. Both acts include 
provisions both for the supply of information about 
birth notifications by the National Health Service 
(NHS) to the Registrar General and the supply of 
information on individual registered births by the 
Registrar General to the NHS 



2.15 Further information 

Requests for births data, as well as background information 
on this volume, on unpublished VS tables, and on data 
quality, should be made to:

Segensworth Road 
Titchfield 
Fareham 

HantsP015 5RR 
Telephone: 01329 444110; 
email: vsob@ons.gsi.gov.uk 



The UK Statistics Authority is guided by the following:- 

• Registration Service Act 1953, which in section 19 
requires the UK Statistics Authority to provide annual 
abstracts of live births and stillbirths 

• Abortion Act 1 967, which permits termination of 
pregnancy by a registered practitioner, subject to 
certain conditions and the Abortion Regulations 1991 
that enables the Chief Medical Officers to supply 
information about abortions to the UK Statistics 
Authority 

• Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 (the 
2007 Act) transfers some of the statistical functions 
of the Registrar General including the production of 
an annual abstract to the UK Statistics Authority and 
the Office for National Statistics (ONS) becomes 
the executive office of the UK Statistics Authority. 
Simultaneous machinery of government changes 
resulted in the General Register Office, of which the 
Registrar General is the head, becoming part of the 
Identity and Passport Service and the National Health 
Service Central Register (NHSCR) transferring to the 
NHS Information Centre for Health and Social Care 
(IC) 

The 2007 Act also provides the Registrar General with 
a power to allow him to disclose any information about 
a birth or stillbirth to the UK Statistics Authority for 
statistical purposes. It also enables the UK Statistics 
Authority to produce and publish statistics relating to 
any matter

3 Notes on tables 



3.1 



Seasonality 'Tables 2. 1 to \2.5) 



Seasonally adjusted numbers of live births are obtained 
using the X-ll algorithm developed by Statistics Canada. 
This software adjusts the monthly totals to eliminate 
seasonal fluctuations present in the latest 12 years of data, 
controlling them to the observed annual totals. The annual 
TFRs shown in Tables 2.1 and |2.3 fr ave been calculated 
using monthly and quarterly totals (adjusted for the number 
of days in those periods). Adding a new year's data and 
dropping the oldest year means that the figures in Tables 
|2.1| and f2.3 t viH be slightly different over the whole 11- 
year series from those shown in previous volumes. The 
population denominators are calculated for each month and 
quarter by apportioning the difference between one mid- 
year estimate and the next according to the time interval 
from the first. So the mid-November 2000 estimate is (mid- 
2001) - (mid-2000) x 4.5/12 + (mid-2000) because mid- 
November is 4.5 months away from the end of June. This 
method has been used since the 2001 volume. 



number of previous live-bom children by the present and 
any former husband, as stated at registration. This 
information is also used to determine true birth order - see 



section 2.9. 



If the number of previous live-born children is not given, 
a value is imputed from a similar record with completely 
stated and otherwise matching particulars. In 2007, 0.1 
per cent of all live births within marriage had this variable 
imputed. Of all stillbirths within marriage, 8.7 per cent had 
this variable imputed. 



3.4 Duration of marriage 'Tables 5.T~\o 5.3) 



3.2 Age of parents Tables 3.1 'o 3.10, 



Pre-maritally conceived live births are taken to be those 
where the calculated duration of marriage is up to and 
including seven completed months as at the date of the 
child's birth. At registration only the month and year of 
marriage are recorded, so the calculation relates to the 
interval in completed months between the middle of the 
month of marriage and the date of the child's birth. Other 
durations of marriage are calculated in a similar way. 



The mother's or father's date of birth is recorded and 
translated into the age at the birthday preceding the date of 
the child's birth. This age is often termed age last birthday. 
Special checks are carried out on those dates of birth which 
imply that the age of the mother is over 50 years. While 
most dates of birth are confirmed, these extreme values tend 
to occur more o ften among women born outside England 
and Wales - 



Tables 9.1| to |9.6 [ and may result from age 



misreporting. 



In |Tables 3.1,|3.3,|3.9 fc md |3.10] where data from 1997 to 
2007 are given, the method by which missing values for 
mother's and father's date of birth have been im puted has 
changed from 2004 onwards. See section 1.4 for further 
details. 

For 2007 birth records, if either the mother's date of birth 
or the father's date of birth (where applicable) is not given, 
and mother's date of birth cannot be gained from the birth 
notification, an age is imputed from a similar record with 
completely stated and otherwise matching particulars 
using CANCEIS. In 2007, the mother's date of birth was 
not stated for 2.0 per cent of all live births, and the father's 
date of birth was not stated for 2.1 per cent of all live births 
where father's details were present. However, a mother's 
date of birth was successfully gained from linkage with the 
birth notification for 1.6 per cent of all live births in 2007. 



3.3 Previous live-born children 'Tables 4. 1 'o 4.3) 



Information on previous live-bom children is available only 
for women having a birth within marriage. It denotes the 



If the date of marriage is not given, a value for the date of 
marriage is imputed from a similar record with completely 
stated and otherwise matching particulars. In 2007, the 
year of marriage was not stated for 2.3 per cent of all live 
births within marriage. For women who have been married 
more than once, duration refers to the length of the current 
marriage. 



In [Table 1.8, | the percentages shown are based on live births 
where the mother married in the year shown and the birth 
was within eight months of marriage, and on first marriages 
in the same year. Thus the percentages (by age) for year of 
marriage 2005 would be based on (a) the number of live 
births in 2005 or 2006 where the mother conceived in 2005 
and gave birth within eight months of marriage, and (b) the 
number of first marriages occurring in 2005. This and Table 
|l.5b how marriages for 2005 as figures for marriages in 
2006 are not available for this volume. 



3.5 Multiple births [Tables 6.1 \ o \6.4) 



Multiple births arising from a single pregnancy are counted 
as one maternity or paternity, although each child bom 
is reckoned separately in analyses of birth statistics. In 
tables analysing births by the number of previous live-born 
children, multiple births are counted as if they had occurred 
separately - in the case of twins for instance, as one first and 
one second birth. 



XXIV 



3.6 Birthweight ( Tables 7.5\ ma \ 7. 7)\ 



Birthweight is measured in grams, and is notified to the 
local health authority by the hospital where the birth took 
place or by the midwife or doctor in attendance at the 
birth. These details are then supplied to the registrar. For 
stillbirths, details of the weight of the foetus are supplied 
on a certificate or notification by a doctor or midwife. The 
certificate or notification is then taken by an informant to 
the registrar. 

In cases where no birthweight is recorded, the birth is 
included in the total 'all weights' but not distributed 
amongst the individual categ ories. (These ca tegor ies may 
thus not add up to the total in | Tables 7.5~k nd |7/7J . In 2007, 
birthweight was not stated for 1.1 per cent of all live births, 
and for 2.6 per cent of stillbirths. 



standards - see section 2.7. Tables 9.1 to 9.6 have been 



updated to use the 2007 classifications for all years. 



3.9 Birth cohorts ^Tables 10. l\ to \l 0.5) 



Birth statistics analysed by year of occurrence and by age of 
mother have been available since 1938. Tables 10.1 o 10.5 



show these statistics in cohort form - by the year of birth 
of the mother rather than the year of birth of the child. The 
years of birth shown are by necessity approximate since, 
prior to 1963, data are available only by calendar year of 
occurrence and age of mother at childbirth. For instance, 
women aged 32 giving birth to children in 2007 could 
have been born in either 1974 or 1975; for convenience, 
however, such women are here regarded as belonging to the 
1975 cohort. 



3.7 Place of confinement and area of occurrence 



{Tables 8.1 to 8.3) 



Place of confinement is categorised as follows: 

NHS establishments - generally hospitals, maternity 
units and maternity wings; 

Non-NHS establishments - including private maternity 
units, military hospitals, and private hospitals; 

At home - denoting the usual place of residence of the 
mother; 

Elsewhere - including all locations not covered above: 
most of these are at a private residence not that of the 
mother, or are on the way to a hospital. 

A birth is usually assigned to an area according to the usual 
residence of the mother at the time of birth, as stated at 
registration. However, a birth may take place in an area 



other than that of the mother's usual residence. Table 8.2 



shows whether a confinement takes place in the same area 
as the mother's usual area of residence, or if it occurred in a 
different area. Births which take place at home or elsewhere 



are not allocated a health area of occurrence. Table 8.3 



shows the numbers of maternities, live births and stillbirths 
occurring in NHS and non-NHS establishments, by area of 
occurrence. 



3.8 Country of birth of mother/father ( Tables 9. 1 to 9. 6) 



For children bom in England and Wales, the country of 
birth of each parent has been recorded at birth registration 
since April 1969. However, it should be noted that 
birthplace does not necessarily equate with ethnic group. A 
fuller discussion of this subject can be found elsewhere. 13 

Country of birth groupings represent the 2007 classification list 
in which country codes have been harmonised to international 



[Tables 10.1 tc 10.5 all refer to age in completed years. 



|Table 10.2| gives, for a particular cohort (women born in a 
given year), the average number of live-born children after 
n completed years of age. When data become available 
for a given cohort from 1 5 to 45 completed years, the 
figure shown after 45 completed years of age measures the 
average completed family size for women born in that 
cohort. This is calculated by summing the age-specific 
birth rates for that cohort shown in | Table 10.1| up to and 
including age n. For example, ! Table 103] shows that 
women born in 1970 had given birth to 0.22 children 
on average after 20 completed years of age. This was 
calculated by adding the age-specific birth rates for the 
1 970 cohort in |Table 10.1 | up to and including age 20 - that 
is, (3+12+28+48+61+72)71,000 = 0.22. 



3.10 Socio-economic classifica tion a s defined by 
occupation \(Tables 11.1 \ o \ll.5. 



The information on occupation of the father is coded for 
only a sample of one in ten births. Combining this with the 
employment status, a code for socio-economic classification 
(or social class in previous volumes) may be derived. From 
1991 to 2000 the occupation of the father was coded using 
the Standard Occupational Classification SOC90 14 , and 
occupation codes were allocated to the Registrar General's 
Social Class. 

The Standard Occupational Classification is revised every 
ten years and in 2001 SOC2000 15 - 16 replaced SOC90. The 
coding of employment status also changed in 2001 to be 
consistent with the 2001 Census and SOC2000. Since 2001, 
the National Statistics Socio-economic Classification (NS- 
SEC) 17 has categorised the socio-economic classification 
of people, and has replaced the Registrar General's Social 
Class and the Socio-economic Group (SEG). SOC2000 
and employment status are used to derive NS-SEC for 
births. The new classification is based not on skills but 
on employment conditions, which are now considered to 
be central to describing the socio-economic structure of 
modern societies. 



XXV 



NS-SEC has eight analytic classes, the first of which can be 
subdivided: 



1 



Higher managerial and professional occupations 

1 . 1 Large employers and higher managerial 
occupations 

1 .2 Higher professional occupations 
Lower managerial and professional occupations 
Intermediate occupations 

Small employers and own-account workers 

Lower supervisory and technical occupations 

Semi-routine occupations 

Routine occupations 

Never worked and long-term unemployed 



Students, occupations not stated or inadequately described, 
and occupations not classifiable for other reasons are added 
as 'Not Classified'. 



The sample figures in Tables 11.1 | t o| 11.5p ave been 
grossed-up to agree with known totals derived from the 100 
per cent processing of birth registrations by mother's age 
and previous live-born children in Table 4.1a. This ensures 
consistency with sub-totals, and improv es the quality of 
sample estimates. Appendix Tables 3 | and[4~thow standard 
errors for selected numbers of births and percentages. Thus, 
if the estimated grossed-up number in a particular category 
was 50,000, then from Appendix Table 3 \ he standard error 
of that estimate would be approximately 640. Based on 
statistical theory, this means that for the type of distribution 
being considered there is about a 95 per cent chance that 
the 'true' number in the population lies within two standard 
errors of the estimates. This true number is that which 
would have been obtained had all the information been 
collected, rather than a one in ten sample. 

In this example, the 95 per cent confidence interval would be: 

50,000 ± 1,300, or 48,700 to 5 1,300. 

In other words, we could say that we are 95 per cent 
confident that the true value, if we had collected all the 
information instead of a 10 per cent sample, lies somewhere 
between 48,700 and 51,300. 



3.11 Birth intervals 'Table 11.3) 



Figures in |Table 11.3 s howing median birth intervals are 
produced using two separate sources. The median interval 
between marriage and first birth is derived from births 
registration data. It relates to births occurring in England 
and Wales within marriage only and to the first child whose 
father is the present or former husband. For remarried 
women, the interval is measured from the date of the 
current marriage. Where the first maternity is a multiple 
birth, the interval is measured from marriage for each 
resulting child. 



The other part of the table shows the median intervals 
between first, second, third and fourth births. It is derived 
by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) from a 5 per cent 
sample of new claims for Child Benefit from all births 
occurring in the United Kingdom - whether within or 
outside marriage. A zero interval is assumed for births 
resulting from a multiple maternity. Following the Child 
Benefit data loss in November 2007, HMRC ceased all 
extracts from the Child Benefit Computer System (CBCS) 
pending a thorough review of all interfaces. Therefore, the 
median intervals between first, second, third and fourth 
births in 2007 were not available at the time of publication 
of this volume. For those years for which data is available a 
zero interval is assumed for births resulting from a multiple 
maternity.

Glossary 



Abortion 



The legal termination of a pregnancy under the 1 967 Abortion Act. 



Age-Specific Fertility Rate (ASFR) The number of live births to mothers of a particular age per 1 ,000 women in that age 

group. Useful for comparing fertility of women at different ages or women of the same 
age in different populations. 

Annual Reference Volume (ARV) ARVs are yearly publications produced by ONS for a variety of topics (for example, 

Birth statistics, series FM1). 



Average Family Size 



Average family size represents the number of births each woman has achieved by a 
specified age, for a cohort of women (such as, women born in a particular year). 



Canadian Census Edit and 
Imputation System (CANCEIS) 



A donor-based imputation system, developed by Statistics Canada, used to impute 
missing values for PSA data items for birth records since 2004. 



Cohort 



A specific group of people, in this case, those born during a particular year. Analysis 
using cohorts considers the experience of that group of people over time. 



Conception 



ONS uses the definition - a pregnancy of a woman which leads either to a maternity or 
an abortion. 



Crude Birth Rate 
First Release 



The number of live births in a year per 1 ,000 mid-year population. 

Once an annual dataset from a particular source such as birth registration has 
been quality assured, its first publication is referred to as a First Release. This is 
accompanied by a news, or press, release which details the main findings. 



General Fertility Rate (GFR) 



The number of live births per 1,000 women aged 15-44. Measure of current fertility 
levels. 



General Household Survey (GHS) The GHS is a continuous survey carried out by ONS, collecting information on a range 

of topics from people living in private households in Great Britain. 

General Register Office (GRO) The GRO (part of the Identity and Passport Service since 1 April 2008) is responsible 

for ensuring the registration of all births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships that 
have occurred in England and Wales and for maintaining a central archive. 



Gross Reproduction Rate (GRR) 



The sum of age-specific fertility rates for female births only. The average number 
of live daughters that a woman would bear in her life, if the female population 
experienced current ASFRs based on female births throughout their childbearing years. 



Health Statistics Quarterly 



A quarterly National Statistics publication that covers mortality and health information, 
including articles and reports on conceptions. 



Informant 



The person(s), normally one or both parents, who provide the registrar with the 
information required at the registration of a birth. 



Imputation 



A method used to add information to an incomplete birth record, using the details from 
another similar but complete record.

Joint Registration 



A birth outside marriage registered by both the mother and father of the child. Both 
parents' details are recorded and both must be present at the registration. 



Live Birth 
Maternity 



A baby showing signs of life at birth. 

A confinement resulting in the birth of one or more live-born or stillborn children. 
Therefore, the number of maternities (and paternities) is less than the total number of 
live births and stillbirths. 



Mean 



A common measure of the average. The values are summed and then divided by the 
total number of observations. 



Median 



Statistical term for the value for which half the data are above and half are below. An 
alternative measure of the average to the mean. 



Multiple Births 



A single maternity resulting in two or more births.

National Statistics. 



Natural Change 



The change to the size of the population due to births and deaths (not taking into 
account the contribution of migration).

Similar to the GRR, but also takes into account the effect of mortality to women of 
childbearing age. 



News Release 
Notification 



A news, or press, release details the main findings in a First Release. 

A document completed by the doctor or midwife present at the birth. The notification 
provides certain data items, such as the birthweight, to the birth record.

Regular articles in Population Trends and Health Statistics Quarterly on births and 
conceptions. 

Registration Online. A web-based system which enables registrars to record births, 
stillbirths, deaths and civil partnerships online. Over half of births in this volume were 
registered on RON. 

Registration Service Software. System of collecting data electronically at the 
registration of a birth or a death. Used prior to the introduction of RON. In this volume 
47 per cent of the births were registered on RSS. 

The effect of seasonal fluctuations to monthly and quarterly births figures. Monthly 
totals are adjusted in | Tables 2.1 | and [2.3| to eliminate this effect. 

Persons who have never been married or in a civil partnership. 

Only birth born in a maternity. 

Standard Occupational Classification 2000 is the current occupational classification. 
SOC2000 codes, details of employment status and size of organisation are required for 
the derivation of NS-SEC. See NS-SEC. 

A birth outside of marriage registered only by the mother. No information on the father 
is recorded. 

A measure of the sampling variation occurring by chance when only part of the total 
population has been selected for analysis. For example, father's occupation is coded on 
only 10 per cent of live birth records. 

The average age (for example, at birth or marriage) of the population in question 
calculated to take into account the changing distribution of that population by age and 
over time. This mean should be used when analysing trends. 

A child that has issued forth from its mother after the 24th week of pregnancy, and that 
did not at any time after being completely expelled from its mother breathe or show any 
signs of life. 

Local authority employee with responsibilities relating to marriage and other 
registration functions, as specified in the relevant legislation. 



XXIX 



Total Fertility Rate (TFR) 



The TFR is the average number of live children a group of women would have if they 
experienced the age-specific fertility rates for the calendar year in question throughout 
their childbearing lifespan. 



True Birth Order 



The number assigned to a birth based on the number of previous live births to that 
mother, counting all births inside or outside of marriage. 



UK Statistics Authority 



The UK Statistics Authority is an independent body operating at arm's length from 
government as a non-ministerial department, directly accountable to Parliament. It was 
established on 1 April 2008 by the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007. 



Unstandardised Mean Age 



The average age (for example, at birth or marriage) of the population in question, 
calculated as the actual average for a particular year. It does not take into account the 
changing distribution of that population over time. This measure should be used when 
requiring a mean for particular year.
